Conky always on top after upgrade to 6

After upgrading, I cannot get conky to stay behind other windows as it always has. Window type was always normal, but I’ve tried using desktop as is indicated by most people wiith this issue, but it doesn’t help.

own_window_type desktop
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

Also tried creating a rule to no avail:
Window class Conky
Match whole window class no (tried both)
Window types Desktop
Keep below other windows Force

Something obviously changed with the upgrade, but not sure what else to try.

I have the same issue - I only have one (clock) that’s supposed to float over windows, the rest should be behind, but are always on top…

I’m guessing we have to wait for a conky update… but this seems to be Plasma 6 having something about Dock windows… as the ability to set ‘Windows cover’ for the panel is now removed, it appears that it’s a Dock thing.

Worse still, when removing the ‘Dock’ window type from Conky it is no longer skipped in the Desktop Grid.

Conkies on desktop:

||-- Window specifications|
||gap_x = 350,|
||gap_y = 5,|
||alignment = 'top_right',|
||own_window = true,|
||own_window_transparent = true,|
||own_window_argb_visual = true,|
||own_window_argb_value = 50,|
||own_window_hints = 'undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager',|
||own_window_type = 'normal',|
||own_window_class = 'conky',|

Conky on top (Clock):

-- Window specifications
	gap_x = -670,
	gap_y = 5,
	alignment = 'top_middle',
	own_window = true,
	own_window_type = 'dock',
	own_window_transparent = true,
	own_window_argb_visual = true,
	own_window_argb_value = 50,
	own_window_hints = 'undecorated,above,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager',
	own_window_class = 'conky',
